Making pancakes from scratch is a simple and delicious way to start your day. To make the perfect pancakes, you'll need the following ingredients: 2 cups all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 eggs, 2 cups of milk, 2 tablespoons of melted butter, and a pinch of cinnamon (optional).
To start, mix the dry ingredients in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, milk, and melted butter. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, stirring until just combined. Do not overmix.
Heat a non-stick skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Grease the pan with butter. Using a ladle or large spoon, pour 1/4 cup of batter onto the hot skillet. Cook the pancakes until bubbles form on the surface, about 2 minutes. Flip the pancakes and cook on the other side until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes.
Serve the pancakes with butter and your favorite syrup. Enjoy!
